Big Fat Thank You!
If you are reading this blog post, you signed up for our private beta and we are enormously grateful.
You’re probably wondering: who are these guys, what exactly are they doing and .. WHY?
That’s good cause we just wanted to share this with you:
We are a team of young tech enthusiasts from Bulgaria. We have extensive experience in Coding, UX design and… yes! Agriculture.
Our private beta release date is approaching and we want to keep you updated. Here is what the selected early members will get:
1. SIMPLE USER FLOW AND GREAT UX DESIGN:
We value your time. Focus on what you are doing best: fly your drone more instead of playing Sherlock Holmes with hidden menus and buttons.
2. UPLOAD IMAGES TO THE WEB PLATFORM:
Capture overlapping images of a farming field and upload to our platform.
We’re talking about big size files. Don’t worry if the uploading process is interrupted in case you lose internet connection, there is a power supply cut or you just hit the wrong button — yeah it happens to everyone :)
We got you covered. You can resume your upload from where it got interrupted.
3. STITCH IMAGES INTO ORTHOMOSAIC MAPS:
If we can’t stitch it, nobody can.
We are aware that the state of the art in stitching drone captured images into maps is not advanced enough to cover your needs.
If you have already used the platforms of our competitors, you know that despite the advertisements the process is slow and there are multiple factors that can prevent the flawless stitching of a set of drone captured images.
This is where we count on YOUR support. Give us your hands-on feedback and we’ll build together the best stitching machine on earth.
4. APPLY NDVI ANALYSIS TO THE ORTHOMOSAIC MAP:
NDVI= (NIR-RED) / (NIR+RED): The algorithm is sitting since the early 70’s
The difference is that, today you have your drone and your near-infrared camera. Unleash it’s power with the touch of a button. Generate your health crop analysis to rapidly pinpoint issues on the farm field, such as weeds, pests and fungi.
5. WATCH NDVI VIDEO
Don’t have the time to wait for stitching? We understand your pain. AgroHelper platform allows you to upload a near-infrared captured video and watch it’s NDVI version instantaneously while tracking the position of your drone on the map.
6. IS THAT ALL???
Hell No!! We are currently working on a killer feature that will turn the drone agriculture industry on its head.
We will keep you updated in our next private blog posts
And again WHY we аre doing all this?
In 2017 we are used to get information easily on the internet, learn new skills and apply them immediately. When we first approached the drone industry we were astonished to discover how unclear it is.
Have you ever had the feeling that you try to understand something and you turn in a vicious circle between the websites of a handful of providers and their supposedly “independent” blogs?
Well, we are here to break the dogma. Tell your friends, get your drones out and let’s roll!
